REVIEW: McGuffey's Restaurant - McGuffeys Restaurant

We visited McGuffeys Restaurant in March of this year. We had the worst experience there. We had used Branson Getaways and they are the ones that set us up with this restaurant as the one in our "package deal". We went to the restaurant we should have known something was up because it was not busy at all and we were there in the evening. We had to wait 15 minutes for a server and when he finally showed up, he was very arrogant and could have cared less about treating his customers with a caring smile or a nice word. He took our order and it took another 45 minutes to get our food. We ask him a couple of times why it was taking so long and he just ignored our questions. Well when we finally received out food the server dropped it off and took off and we did not see him again until we received our bill. Well, we suddenly could see why. He had charged us a large gratuity on our bill and so whether he was a pleasant and attentive server, he still received a very handsome tip. That is such a rip off and dishonest way to earn a living. Had he been a attentive server and taken care of our needs while at the restaurant, we would have had no problem leaving a generous tip. Needless to say we will never visit McGuffeys again or use Branson Getaways again. I am assuming that the only way they can get business is when Branson Getaways or some other company can use them as the restaurant they choose for their guest. Well, I will be making my own reservations from now on and never will McGuffeys be in my plans again.

We ate there last year on our trip and my husband did not care for it either. I had some kind of pasta dish and mine wasn't bad but my husband said his steak was not good.

This USED to be one of our favorite places to eat in town. It has gone downhill in the past year or so. But they do have a good menu and the spinich and artichoke dip is probably the best around. Get the sinful chicken!

Thanks for the warning!

We have never ate there--but it is one of those places that you think "we should try that sometime", so now we won't!!

We ate there several years ago, and we didn't enjoy the experience. We have never been back.
